“Your Employees (and Candidates) are on Drugs”
This critical, solutions-based program is presented by award-winning author and international keynote speaker, Andy Masters, MA, CSP. This shocking program exposes the nearly $1 Billion dollar fake “synthetic” urine industry which enables employees and candidates to successfully cheat employer drug tests–and it’s damaging impact on every organization during our tragic U.S. opioid crisis. Research proves the staggering time and cost impact from workplace drug usage on employee productivity, risk, safety, workers comp claims, and violence in the workplace. Precedent has now been set for legal liability against the vast majority of U.S. organizations that have not effectively screened employees and candidates amid changing marijuana laws. Most importantly, this program outlines the simple, yet critical action steps organizations must implement to stop the cheating immediately–in order to hire qualified applicants, improve employee productivity, improve workplace safety, and lessen the dangerous legal liability for their organization. The impact of this program may not only save entire organizations from legal crises, but can also help prevent yet another drug-related workforce tragedy in our country.
